Customisable private areas known as QSuites featuring the first-ever “party-of-four” seating configuration and the first double bed available in Business Class were unveiled by Qatar Airways at ITB Berlin last week.
Introduced by group chief executive Akbar Al Baker, the revamped Business Class product ushers in what the airline called a never-before-seen standard in premium travel.
Centred around a new design of seat, the QSuite features privacy panels that stow away, allowing passengers in adjoining seats to create their own private room with a double bed.
The “party-of-four” arrangement also has adjustable panels and movable TV monitors on the centre four seats to allow colleagues, friends or families travelling together to transform their space into a private area for work, dining or socialising. together.
Al Baker said the QSuite represented “the future of premium travel”, challenging industry norms by offering passengers more privacy, more choice and more personalisation.
He added: “With these innovations, Qatar Airways has revolutionised the way we serve our passengers, enabling our passengers to enjoy a First Class experience in Business Class.”
Al Baker also announced that starting this summer, Qatar Airways will begin offering “best-in-class” inflight connectivity, with more announcements to come shortly.
